You are right where you need to be.

Samadhi RUSH.

Centering: Take a moment in a seated position (sukhasana, virasana, padmasana, whatver) to elongate the spine and relax the hips. Breathe into this moment. Know that whatever challenges life has handed you at this moment in time will be the catalyst to bring you to a new place of peace, happiness, growth. Sit here for a moment, noticing the breath. Bring the hands to the heart in Anjali Mudra. Bow your head to your heart and silently repeat “I am right where I need to be.”
